When it comes to looking at the price for garage cabinets, it will vary by brand and size, but also by features. Here are some of the more common things to look for or keep in mind when you are looking at pricing for garage cabinets. Just like when buying a house, the quickest way to determine what you are getting for your money is by determining the price per cubic foot. This will give you a quick and easy measurement to start the comparison with. In addition, check the standard dimensions for height, width and depth so you can get a gauge of what you are going to be able to store inside. Pricing can range anywhere from as low as $11 per cubic foot to as high as $40 per cubic foot so it pays to examine the cabinets closely to see what features you are getting for your money.
Whether you go with ready-made, custom, or recycled cabinets, you will need some basic skills and tools to safely attach wall cabinets. Be sure to use screws, not nails, and that the screws are long enough to penetrate the studs at least 1-1/2 inches. Consider the most practical height for your cabinets, so things can be reached easily. Whether you do the work yourself or hire it done, you will be proud to have a place for everything and everything in its place when you have got your new garage cabinets.
The basic aim of a garage is to park your vehicle(s), but even after doing so a lot of space is left in the garage that you can use appropriately. Most of us use this space to store various items like paint boxes, garden tools and equipments, water pipes, old magazines and several other junk materials which can be use in repair or renovation in future. To store it all in an organized manner, so that it does not come in the way, a garage cabinet system is required.
Recycled Garage Cabinets. A great way to set up with cabinets is to recycle kitchen cabinets, especially older ones which are made well. This method has many advantages, especially in cost and in not dumping perfectly usable cabinetry in a landfill. Cabinet doors can be painted or even removed for open shelving. Wall units can be stacked for floor-to-ceiling storage. You can get cabinets for free or a pittance from remodeling contractors or builders outlets such as a Habitat for Humanity Re-Store.
What type of garage cabinets will add the most value? The answer to that question is two-fold. The first has to do with the inherent attractiveness, quality and style of the cabinets themselves. And the second has to do with flexibility and how well the storage solutions match with what a new buyer will likely want.
It is a good idea to make sure to get the cabinets which are strong and reliable enough to store the equipment and household stuff your family needs to keep in the garage. You should always consider installing cabinets with shelves that are capable of storing heavy items as well as the small stuff, even though you might not have anything that heavy at the moment, it is a good bet you will soon. Properly installing the right garage cabinets for you and your family is as convenient as keeping your kitchen organized with the use of kitchen cabinets. With everything neat, tidy and in order, it also enables you to park your car inside, comfortably for a change. Staying dry and warm in cold and wet weather is its own reward!
